I have been so honored by the overwhelming support of my fellow bloggers! Since they have been so supportive of my DIY round up, it will now become my regular Monday feature. I hope you will continue to stop by on Mondays.
I have been on a major DIY kick lately! You could probably tell by my Pinterest boards, because I have a lot of future DIY projects planned. So here are a few of my inspirations for this month from some very talented bloggers. Thanks so much to Holly, Sophie, Cynthia, and Barbara for allowing me to share their projects.
Please visit each blog for full instructions, and let them know how much you appreciate all their talent, and hard work that goes in to making amazing DIY projects. They would love some extra pins and comments!
DIY Mug Decorating
Holly from Ramblings of a Fake Redhead has a great tutorial about mug decorating using a porcelain pen. She explains how she was nervous to just use a Sharpie because she was afraid it would not stay on. So she choose a porcelain pen to ensure the best results. Holly also mentions that this is an easy project, but not a last-minute one. The drying time is quite long and you would need to allow plenty of time for that. Holly is from Tasmania and loves to read, dance, dream, and to make cupcakes. She is also starting a challenge of 52 books in 52 weeks! Follow along with her as she reaches her goal.[bctt tweet=”Learn all about Mug #Decorating from @hollyoftherain! #DIY”]
DIY Kanzashi Hair Ornament
Sophie from Moon & the Mirror said when she was in Japan last year she fell in love with the art of the hair ornaments. The Japanese Kanzashi (hair ornament) has adorned the elaborate hair of Geisha and were also worn by regular women for centuries. Kanzahi hair ornaments were known for their composition and intricate details. Sophie goal is to inspire her readers to embrace themselves, and to realize their own authentic person. Be sure and visit her blog to learn even more about Kanzashi (hair ornaments).[bctt tweet=”#DIY your own Kanzashi Hair Ornament! #Hair #Fashion”]
DIY Watercolor Pillows
Cynthia from The Craft of Laughter fell in love with some watercolor pillows she found online, but after seeing the price of $60 each she decided it was time to make her own. Follow along as she talks about the two main ways to accomplish this. She also explains which became her favorite way and why. I just love the way this project turned out. You could easily pick a simple pattern or just have a great splotch look. Cynthia is a RN nurse who loves to run, she crafts, sews, and runs a small business. I hope you take the time to check out this project and more on her blog.[bctt tweet=”Make your own Watercolor #Pillows! #DIY instructions by @CraftofLaughter “]
New Way of Pressing Leaves
Barbara from Mom with Five shows us a new way to press leaves and flowers! You need a few items to press this design on to handmade paper, and you are left with an impression of the leafs. This simple method will have you bring out the hammer in no time. Did I mention a hammer is my favorite tool? Barbara is a stay at home mom of 5 kids. She blogs about life with her kids, parenting adventures, DIY, and much more. You will enjoy following along with her, and her positive spin on parenting even though it is hard work.[bctt tweet=”Barbara at @momwithfiveblog has a great new way to press #leaves! #DIY #Fall”]
Never Miss Another DIY Project!
So I hope to get a few of these amazing projects done soon. I think we all need a little creative time to stay sane. Maybe I can disappear in to the craft room soon (aka hide from kids)!
